I want to listen to your reasons for wanting to learn, your goals of where you want your skills to get to, and then we get to work.

We will build a schedule and plan to make sure you develop good learning and growing habits.

I am available between lessons for free when you want me to quickly check for you.

Nothing worse than getting stuck on something and being 5 days away from your next lesson right?


I'm a tv composer, international composer and performer, and life long teacher and learner.

I've worked in the music industry for my entire life. I've spent years doing many different jobs in the world of music.

    Colin is awesome! He took into account my goals and is using his wealth of experience to teach me at my level to get me where I want to be. He is patient and motivating and always speaks positively about my work. I leave my lessons excited about making music. If you are interested in learning any facet of music composition, you should absolutely pick Colin to teach you!

    Frequently asked questions

    In the first lesson we will take our time, relax, and allow you to show off your current level. I do not charge extra if this lesson goes over, which it generally does. It is very important to get the most acccurate gauge of where you are and what your goals are. 

    From there, we build a plan together to get you on track to reach your goals. 

    I'm also available to weekly students via text and email between lessons for questions!
